Ten Years After The US-Backed Coup in Honduras



GUEST: Matt Ginsberg-Jaeckle, member of the Honduras Solidarity Network.

BACKGROUND: June 28th marks the tenth anniversary of the US-backed coup in Honduras that ousted democratically elected President Manuel Zelaya and unleashed a new chapter of violence in the Central American nation.

The coup was backed by the Obama Administration and especially by then State-Secretary Hillary Clinton. Now, a decade later, Hondurans join waves of Central American refugees in fleeing the drug and gang violence that is plaguing their nation.

Despite the incessant discussion of immigration in the US, few are connecting the dots between the US support of a devastating coup and how its aftermath has generated an exodus northward.
